Czech Republic - Using all four stages of the quality cycle
The Commercial Secondary School in Brno, Czech Republic first started using a four-stage quality assurance cycle in 2005. The approach, based on the Common Assessment Framework (a predecessor to EQAVET) led to the school receiving the “The National Quality Award of the Czech Republic – public sector” in 2010.
To identify the quality of course and the outcomes of education, the School uses:
- internal evaluations for key activities such as school leaving exams, assessment, activities linked with realisation of students’ personal development, continuous professional development of staff, the costs of course provision etc.
- class observations performed by the school management
- close cooperation with social partners.
The quality assurance model helps to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. An independent external evaluator also uses of questionnaire surveys, statistical comparisons and internal evaluations to help the School review performance.
